OK. Overall quality of experience seems to depend on manager.

I worked at BlackRock full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good benefits including health coverage. Nice modern and new work space. Very bright and professional colleagues.

Somewhat arbitrary bonus structure. Strategic direction was not always clear.

Clarify strategic direction. Map bonuses to realistic annual personalized goals as well as overall performance.

    I have been working at BlackRock full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic culture, smart coworkers, nice office space, accessible managers, decent wage compensation, good benefits package (great healthcare), support for professional certifications

    Cons

    Little career advancement, very little skills training offered other than "on the job", no mentorship program, extremely vague/arbitrary bonus structure even for high performers (no targets to hit or performance incentives- it all depends on the how the overall company does), low wage growth, promotion process is an annual event with strict limits on how often people can be promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with people to develop a 3-5 year professional development plans, with targets they can strive and that are realistic within the company/division.
